Since it was so cold, we were all stuck inside the house this weekend. At noon today, it was 11 degrees but with a wind chill of -4. What really irritated me was that

Now that we are getting close to being about a month away from welcoming our little girl into the world, I am pleading for this month to go super fast because I am so exhausted and can’t move the way I want to move. Ethan has had enough and gets impatient with me on not being able to do everything I used to do with him. Poor little guy will say, “Mom, come play mom” repeatedly. However, after 20 minutes on the floor, my back is killing me and I get so uncomfortable that I need to get up and move. Thankfully, Eric has been very good about jumping in and helping me but I really wish I had more energy and mobility to keep up with him. For instance, when he wants me to read to him, he will bring a book over and take his usually place in my lap. However, with my belly in the way he can’t sit still because he is constantly trying to push my belly in with his body. He gives me this look like, What is your problem, Mom? I just wish I had more energy to keep up with him. I really want things to stay the same way because once she does come along; I don’t want him to freak out and think that he his being pushed aside. I hope that once Eric finishes his thesis, which is supposed to be within the next couple of days, we can all just have a relaxing month before she is born. Eric and I were mentioning that we were ready for another cruise. I need another vacation!

Today is a very special day because our little one turns two years old! Time just flies by. We cannot believe how much he has changed and continues to amaze us each day by his little antics. He has really grown into his own little person. He is a pure boy, he is so active and enjoys playing the mischievous role a little too much. We enjoy watching him grow especially now that he is learning so many new words and phrases. It actually makes some conversations quite interesting. We cannot wait to see what how Ethan grows into his new age and continues to learn new things.
However, we did have a rough start today because I was at the hospital for half of the day. Around three this morning I woke up feeling so horrible with a fever, chills and I was having irregular contractions. Even though, they were irregular, they were still painful. Well, after some blood work and an exam the doctor just concluded that even though I was having some irregular contractions I wasn’t dilating. He said that since I am now 34 weeks he can’t give me anything to stop the contractions. Basically, grin and bear it!
Today was also our wedding anniversary. Eric and I enjoyed a nice grown up evening out knowing it may be our last for a while once this little comes. We honestly think she will make her debut on Valentines Day. Not that it may be cute to born on Valentines or anything. Just saying that since Ethan was born on our anniversary and watch her be born on Valentines. Our romantic holidays would be shot!

The other pictures are of our little Picasso. He has been playing with crayons for a while and has never written on anything except his coloring book. So...he got a desk for Christmas so he could practice his artistic techniques. We were going to get him an easel, but as you can see, we saved a bunch of money because our walls are white and Ethan just uses them as his own personal easel. Luckily the whole house is white, so he will never run out of drawing space.
